I heard it through the grapevine that Chobani had several new flavors out, so I made it my mission to locate the new flavors & give them a try. Apparently the mango has been around for a short while, but it has somehow escaped my radar.
I was so excited with my purchases, I couldn’t decide which flavor to try first! I finally decided on the blood orange. After my strength training on Monday, I grabbed the yogurt right after I get out of the shower. I have a bad habit of drinking coffee, checking email and keeping my butt firmly planted in my chair and not eating breakfast as soon as I should after my workout. The first 60 minutes after your workout is the best time to get protein & carbs in to refuel those muscles. I was wasting that hour screwing around on my computer. It is easy to remedy that by grabbing a small cup of yogurt that packs 14 grams of protein in it! The blood orange flavor was amazing! What a unique fruit to use in yogurt. I can see buying this again in the very near future.
Next up was the apple cinnamon yogurt. I ate this before heading to yoga one night and it did a great job of holding me over between lunch & dinner. The yogurt contained small chunks of apples and just enough cinnamon. It was a nice refreshing treat!
I was a little intimidated by the passion fruit yogurt. I didn’t realize there would be decent size seeds in the yogurt, but I got over my hesitation and took a bite. WOW! I love this stuff! I have never tried passion fruit, but think that I need to see if I can find one and try it (in season, of course). I definitely have a passion for this passion fruit yogurt! I know that was cheesy, sorry!
Last, but certainly not least, was the mango yogurt. It was every bit as good as the others and I love it! Little chunks of mango nestled in the thick, creamy yogurt were such a treat! This variety, along with the passion fruit is low-fat (2%), not non-fat. The 2% varieties only have 20 more calories and are much creamier. Now I need to head to the store to get more Chobani ASAP!
Chobani Greek yogurt can be found in most mainstream grocery stores across the US. Do you have a favorite Chobani flavor? Have you tried the new flavors yet?
